Have you tried a flush as the SilverStripe templates are cached and need to be flushed when they are updated.
See the info from [ur]

Flushing the cache

Whenever we edit a template file, we need to append ?flush=1 onto the end of the URL, e.g. http://localhost/your_site_name/?flush=1. SilverStripe stores template files in a cache for quicker load times. Whenever there are changes to the template, we must flush the cache in order for the changes to take effect.

Also it is always good to include the code you are using in the post so we can see if there is anything wrong.
Using something like is always good
